All Hallow's Eve - 01450

Recommended Posts

This looks like a great figure to practice lighting effects on.  I particularly like the way the light fades into a sunset orange at its fringes.

All that in just 2 hours?! Incredible.. And the end result is a very satisfying OSL.. We gotta get more OSL from you now.. ^_^ 


I am trying to decide whether to keep her as is or dip her and try again. I will probably leave her. I actually have another one of her. Maybe I will try a second one and take my time and do lots of glazing and apply everything I learned. Why not?


It took it a little bit to click in my head because this was not what I was expecting to learn today! I thought it would just be the OSL part, not the whole atmosphere type stuff. Now that I I have a grasp of how it should be done, I will definitely be practicing a lot more OSL! I got Judgement's Istariel and Andrea's Olfo Fastfeet for Christmas. Both need lots of OSL!

This was not at all what I had planned for this figure. When we were told to bring a model primed in black, I grabbed her because she had a lantern and I have 2 of them so if I messed it up, I still have a second one. It ended up being perfect for this exercise! Roman said I need more oranges now. First I needed more dark red, then more orange! The dark red is red mixed with...Nightshade Purple! She is actually basecoated with Nightshade Purple and her moonlit side is NP with a little light blue added for each subsequent highlight. (I was using supplied paint so I don't know the other colors. I had purchased a new bottle of Nightshade Purple though!)


One other little note on this figure. I thought she had bows holding her overskirt back. They are tiny bats! She is so cute!

Thanks for showing her.  I feel like I learned something just looking at her.


Thanks! Once the concept clicked, it honestly seemed easy. I learn so much better when I can see someone else do it. I didn't understand from his description but when he brought his practice mini around it was a lightbulb moment!

      "Umm... Guys, I think I've found our missing team members."
      Presenting the Cleric, part of the second Echoes of Death set from Kingdom Death, not sure why she has such a gruesome base insert, none of the others came with one.
      Disappointingly, she looks pretty terrible in the piccys. Honestly, apart from her decidedly wonky eyes, I thought I'd done a fairly good job.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I decided to do some basecoats on my bonus vulture. He is party turkey vulture (red neck, and the whichbparts of the wings are light and dark, and part other vulture-the white collar).
      Dusky skin shadow 3:  dusky skin 2 for most of the dark colors. Dusky skin highlight for the lights. Cinnamon red for neck and claws.
      Wings were drybrushed with ds highlight and then had another coat of base mix applied they to leave the definition from drybrush. Light parts of wing were lined with brown liner,  then touched up with ds highlight. Tombstone is somber grey.

      These are the Deep Gnome Heroes. I love these minis! Their sculpts are so full of personality! I think the girl gnome may have the best face I have painted thus far!

      My love for pulp is deep and well-documented, and when I heard Statuesque Minis was liquidating their Pulp Alley minis I had to check out the sale. This is not one of their pulp minis, but I couldn't resist the little tyke. About half Lucy Pevensie and half Coraline, a charming sculpt. 

      "The lights must never go out... /
      ...lest we should see where we are, /
      Lost in a haunted wood, /
      Children afraid of the night /
      Who have never been happy or good."

      --W. H. Auden, "September 1, 1939"
